I have recently started buying a brand of chicken sold at Super Target called "Gold n Plump" While not organic, they are cage free chickens, the farm produces all their feed, contains no solution and after reading everything on the website, I feel comfortable buying and eating these. They are REALLY tasty, and a lot cheaper (by about half) than the certfied organic ones. To me it's a good trade-off. I highly recommend them. I buy the whole young 3.5 lb fryer for $5.49 or so, but they are often on sale for half that. I make broth with them first, then use the meat for a couple meals. Delish!

Let me say again; the Wmart chicken I buy is not organic but is not subjected to A/B's and hormones. It tastes like chicken should taste.

There is no comparison to true organic chicken but then an organic chicken will run about $12 while this non A/b non hormone chicken at Wmart is about $6.

The point I was trying to make was that the chicken will pay for itself by making a chicken stock from the carcass. If you use an organic chicken you can effectively cut the price in half by making a chicken stock with the leftovers.

Well, I'm sure that eating chicken without A/B's and hormones is much better than eating chicken with these things.

If the price point that you pay for the food you put in your body (and your child's body) is the most important factor, then surely, you are better off buying the WalMart brand.

I don't like the fat either, but I've learned that barbecuing helps cook out the fat or cooking the thighs on low heat for a longer amount of time in the oven. I only buy the organic if it's on sale.
